Set in an area of pristine wilderness, KaingU Safari Lodge offers a magnificent safari experience in the heart of the African bush. The owner-run lodge, with its comfortable accommodation perfectly in balance with the surroundings, is something unexpected in this remote area. The lodge was built with a lot of patience, good taste, and an extraordinary sense of detail. Our personal attention to each and every guest makes you feel instantly at home. KaingU offers a unique stay for travelers wishing to get closer to the unspoiled wilderness of the ‘real’ Africa, experience the warm and welcoming people of Zambia, and enjoy wildlife and scenery undisturbed.
The Kafue is one of the last true wilderness areas. Covering 22,440km^2, its unmatched variety of species, and being able to enjoy the wildlife almost on your own, make this park one of the last secrets of Africa. This is a place to unwind, enjoy our chefs’ cuisine, and be spoiled with an abundance of activities or if you prefer, just relax and feel the heartbeat of Africa.
Our Lodge is situated in the Namwala Game Management Area (GMA) on a spectacular and remote stretch of the Kafue River, approximately 400 kilometers north of the majestic Victoria Falls. The Kafue National Park, just opposite the lodge and only a 10-minute boat trip away, offers magnificent games that you can enjoy viewing from our comfortable open game drive vehicles. The Kafue River, with all its myriad of channels, rapids, and islands lends itself to a range of exciting river-based activities which include boat cruises, fishing, birding, canoeing, and river trails.
The lodge comprises 6 custom Meru-style tents under thatch and on raised hardwood decks over the river bank. There is also a family house perfect for families or couples traveling together. The central area consists of comfortable lounge and bar areas and a large open deck extending over the river.
